School Education Program
Northern Illinois Energy Project is developing two educational programs that teach children about energy conservation. Both programs give students the tools to make their homes, schools and communities more energy efficient.

PEAK Student Energy Actions Program
NIEP is working with The Energy Coalition to implement its “PEAK” energy efficiency curriculum in a select group of Northern Illinois public schools. This program provides teacher training and classroom materials to educate students about energy issues and build a resource efficiency ethic in our youth.

Chicago Public Schools—Energy Efficiency Curriculum
NIEP is providing funding for a Chicago Public School program that will bring energy education to select eighth grade classrooms. The program will provide teacher training, books and other classroom materials.
